Pancake feed, car show set in Amity
The all-you-can-eat menu features ham, eggs, pancake, coffee and juice. The pancakes will come both unadorned and infused with blueberries from the Blue Raeven Farmstand at the south end of town.
The cost is $7 for adults, $4 for children 6-12 and free for children under 6.
The non-profit women's club organized more than 50 years ago, according to Linda Vollman. Wives of farmers were the earliest members, and their intention was to purchase the building that now houses the library and donate it to the city.
Today, proceeds help support the Amity Fire District, an Amity High School scholarship fund, Amity High's FFA program and the Red Ribbon Week drug-awareness program, oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country. "We save as much money as we think we will need to put on the breakfast the following year, and the rest goes back into the community," Vollman said.
The club's enrollment is dwindling, though, and she fears that will put the pancake feed in jeopardy in future years.
"It gets harder and harder every year," she said. "We need people to join the club. That's the only way we can keep this going."
